Research

The research program is to investigate bioactive compounds from ginseng roots for their potential as anti-inflammatory agents and their ability to avoid the side effects of currently used immunosuppressive drugs.

I mainly focus on the analysis of metabolic effects on whole organism level and sorted leukocyte populations. I have been developing protocols for NMR- and mass spectrometry-based profiling, both in targeted and untargeted manners and focusing especially on stress hormones and sugar metabolism.
